— Authorities are looking for two men who are believed to have killed one man and shot another late Friday night.

The shooting occurred 8:30 p.m. in Scotland Neck, when two men tried to rob Wilbert Caine, 58, authorities said. At some point, investigators said, the assailants ordered Caine to go to his neighbor's.

As Caine left the house, Halifax County sheriff's deputies said the men shot and killed him, and also shot the neighbor, who survived.

Investigators said the alleged gunmen left in a dark-colored SUV similar to a Cadillac Escalade or Ford Expedition. The SUV had a chrome grill and was in very good condition, said authorities.

Anyone with information related to the attack is asked to call to call the Halifax County Sheriff's Office or Halifax County CrimeStoppers at 252-583-4444.
